I tried this place a few years ago when it was called Wonton Chai Noodle and liked it a lot. But they’ve got a new name, and I was curious to see if anything had changed. Back when I went, they were serving up some of the best wonton noodle soup in the GTA, and I wondered if that was still the case.
Spoiler alert: yes, it is absolutely still the case. It’s so good.
Those wontons are magical. They’re just as delicious as they were last time, with perfectly cooked shrimp and a flavour that keeps you coming back for more.
On this visit I ordered the bowl that also comes with beef brisket, and while the brisket was perfectly tender and tasty, the wontons are so good that it kind of feels like a waste of time. Just give me more of those wontons. Give me a million of those wontons. Let me drown in a swimming pool filled with those wontons.
I’m not sure if it’s because I ordered the brisket, but the soup was beefy instead of the usual chicken broth you’re expecting. But it was really tasty, so I can’t complain.
And the same fiery chili oil from my first visit is still on the table. This stuff is great; one spoonful is more than enough to give the bowl a serious kick.
Bonus: while it’s a bit pricier than it was when I visited in 2018 (seven bucks for a bowl back then, nine now, and ten for the version with brisket), it’s still delightfully affordable.
This place is kind of out there in Mississauga, but it’s totally worth the drive. It’s really, really good.
